Writing applications in C++/CX is not like writing normal C++ applications. The interoperability between pure C++ code and the Windows Runtime (WinRT) can be surprisingly expensive. In this article based on Sridhar Madhugiri’s video, C++/CX Best Practices, we look at some of the ways to avoid performance problems in Windows 8 development.
InfoQ brings together four experts in low latency Java to discuss some of the best practices when using Java in these situations.
Many articles describe how a poorly tuned garbage collector can bring an application's SLA to its knees. The G1 collector replaces the conventional algorithms with a concept of “regions” 4
In the world of application delivery, performance tuning still eludes the mainstream. InfoQ spoke to 5 luminaries of the performance monitoring space about it. The result was quite an active debate.
Do the hundreds of JVM start-up flags baffle you when trying to tune the garbage collector? This article will explain the tradeoffs when choosing and tuning garbage collection algorithms 1
Over the past 18 years Java has evolved into the premiere language of the enterprise. Yet cognitive fallacies persist about Java performance. In this article we examine some popular misconceptions. 23
In this article, author Jim Hirschauer justifies the importance of application performance management (APM) process in organizations. He also describes a maturity model for APM. 2
In this article, author Eric Brewer discusses how designers can optimize consistency and availability by explicitly handling partitions to get the best of CAP theorem properties. 8
Michael Slinn examines how to benchmark JVM concurrency options for JVM-based langauges including Java and Scala. 2
The book "Solving Enterprise Applications Performance Puzzles" by Leonid Grinshpan explains how to boost the performance of enterprise applications. 3
Java Performance, by Charlie Hunt and Binu John, provides performance tuning advice for both Java SE and EE applications. InfoQ reviews the book, and talks to the authors about their approach.
